    Those of you building upflow versions that attach to glass with magnets, or float on the surface, might be able to make use of our new sealing techniques for magnets and aluminum:

    Where can I get the magnets and plastic tabs, that you are using?
    What kind of epoxy is that?

    Ebay has a lot of magnets, and we have our here:

    For the tabs, if you mean the magnet protectors, we 3D print those and offer them with our magnets. However you probably would just use extra silicone for your DIY.
